All Lompoc Unified School District campuses will remain closed Tuesday due to poor air quality, district officials announced Monday afternoon.
LUSD schools, like most others in Santa Barbara County, had already been closed Monday due to the poor air quality brought on by the Thomas fire burning in Ventura County. District employees are not required to report to work on Tuesday, and district officials said the plan was to reopen schools on Wednesday.
Although schools will be closed, district officials noted that two area agencies will still be offering child care:
- The Lompoc Boys and Girls Club, 1025 W. Ocean Ave., will be open for early programming from 7:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. free of charge for all members. For nonmembers, there will be a $20 daily fee. Breakfast will be provided, but parents will need to provide lunch for their child. To RSVP, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The Lompoc Family YMCA, 201 W. College Ave., has child care available for children ages 4 and older from 7 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. The fee is $10 per child or $20 per family (those with three or more children). Families who are part of the Afterschool Program will not be charged. To RSVP for the YMCA, email Claudia.email@example.com.
Parents are encouraged to continually check the district's website, at LUSD.org, for further updates.
